The face behind the name

Hi there, Chantelle here from Otella Jewellery.

I started this website about one year ago after being in the corporate industry for fifteen years. I was bored, unfulfilled and needed a change.

It was important for me to do something that not only made me happy but also bring joy to others. Jewellery and Fashion is exactly that. I have always just loved the simplicity of Sterling Silver jewellery. Its timeless and trendy and has stood the test of time.

The jewellery sold on this website are by no means unique, just beautiful things I would love to share and make available to other woman just like me. We all need a little sparkle in our lives, we all need to feel beautiful and I believe jewellery does just that! I hope to make beautiful affordable jewellery available to everyone who ends up on this website.

A few things about me … I never finish a cup of coffee and you can find my coffee cups everywhere. I watch horror movies through my fingers and seriously dislike untrustworthy people, winter, brussel sprouts and spinach (yes, in that order!).  I simply love dressing up, in somewhat unconventional but beautiful clothing and maybe I start my own clothing label in the not too distant future. How exciting is that?

I love to eat (I mean who doesn’t?) and love to cook and you will also notice that I love the word love – hahaha! We are a big blended family and my husband and I share five wonderful kids between the two of us. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners are loud, happy and filled with laughter … followed by the consumption of copious amounts of food. Literally nothing lasts more than a day and a half around this joint. I can stock the fridge to its full capacity, only to look in hours later and discover nothing but empty spaces.
